Our little getaways to farewell summer have been quite amazing. We’ve been wanting to surprise Nico and Oli with unexpected adventures they’ll remember forever. Since I’m not big in camping allll the way but we still wanted to experience outdoor activities together, glamping it my magic word.
We decided to escape to the Saint-Ours Canal, about one hour away from home, staying overnight in an oTENTik accommodation, an hybrid between a tent and a rustic cabin. This national park campsite has all the essentials needed during our stay, bathrooms, showers, full equipped kitchen, BBQ and even a coffee shop within walking distance.
What we loved the most? The magnificent views of the Richelieu River, the landscape, the hassle-free getaway where we could still enjoy the nature, and our little family moments.
This ready-to-camp weekend stay included mattresses separated by the cutest curtains where the kiddos played hide & seek, a table, a rechargeable lantern, LED lighting and a USB ports all powered by solar energy. Even though we didn’t have any electricity or running water in our units, we mostly stay outdoors doing a zillion activities.
We only brought our sleeping bags, pillows, food and table games for the kiddos.
During the day, we visited Statera, an epic three-part adventure features an interactive and one-of-a-kind immersive experience that captures the spellbinding beauty of the Sorel Islands.
This playful and luminous voyage through an extraordinary archipelago – the Sorel islands – showed Nico and Oli the power of nature: air, water, fire and earth.
If you’re in the mood to experience a cruise, Statera also offers 90minute cruise rides where you can explore and see the Sorel Islands.
This moment was all worth it for them and for us.
For practicality purposes, we brought compostable plates and ready-to-serve food for one night. We bbq’d a lot (my hubby’s fave hobby all year long) and did Nico’s favourite breakfast: eggs and bacon!
Our cute little cabin!
